Cherry core with fuchsia rim. Expressive aromas of strawberries, raspberries, cherries, rhubarb, sassafras, and cola. The flavors are restrained and not as articulate as its bouquet. Light-to-mid weight, hibiscus mid-palate, and a medium finish. Attractive.
Tart cherry, pomegranate, earthy minerals, and a hint of sweet spice. Good acidity and fine tannins. My first 2010 Oregon PN and my initial impression is similar to that of 2009 - not a critics' vintage - lacks ripeness and structure, but nice acidity and accessible young.
